"I would suggest that students who are interested in patent law take every possible opportunity to hone their technical writing skills. I would also encourage students to establish a strong technical background including conducting research. When I interviewed for patent law jobs, I was surprised that many perspective employers were more interested in the research that I did at UR, than the criminal litigation work I had done during law school."



John Marsella received a B.A. in political science from the University of Rochester in 2008. While at UR, he was a member of a fraternity. After graduation John served as an intern with the NYS Division of Human Rights and worked as a paralegal for the Hiscock Legal Aid Society in Syracuse, NY. After about eighteen months, John decided to pursue law school. He attended American University, Washington College of Law and graduated in 2013. During law school, John worked for the National Labor Relations Board and externed with the United States Department of Labor. He is currently a staff attorney with the Worker Justice Center of New York. As an attorney, he has experience representing employees in a wide variety of civil rights, labor and employment law matters, including employment discrimination actions, unemployment insurance benefit hearings, class action wage theft cases, and unfair labor practice charges.
